We were met with the most amazing property and gardens and "fabulous", "beautiful", "stunning", "what a find" and "wow" were the words of the first few hours! The walled garden is lovely and a great little introduction to Strickland Manor Farm. You can then enter the house through the large doors into the dining room and lounge which is just beautiful, the beams, the mezzanine and the high ceilings have such character. There are large doors from the lounge that lead onto one of the most beautiful gardens that I have ever seen with ponds, a summer house, tennis court and a fab heated swimming pool. Choosing the bedrooms was great fun, they all have their own individual charm with fresh sheets and towels ready to be used. The kitchen has everything that you need and a few extra bits and pieces that come in handy. We had a small problem with lighting the oven but after a quick email, Merle the owner was on the phone giving us step-by-step instructions and told us to contact her at anytime if we had any other problems at the house. We went to the 'Kings Head' for dinner on the Friday night and the food was very good pub food. The rest of the time we stayed at the house as the weather was beautiful and it would of been a shame to not use the garden. We had a few extra day guests on the Saturday (with permission from Merle) and had caterers with a hogroast. The walled garden was the most perfect place for them to set up in as it was away form the children and they could use the boot room for all of their prep and not take over the kitchen. The children (and adults) made good use of the fantastic pool and the sun beds were a great addition to the relaxing weekend. The conservatory was a lovely addition to the house and was a fab way to start the day with a coffee and view of the beautiful gardens. So, in a nutshell.... Strickland Manor Farm is an absolute delight and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. We will definitely be returning in the future!
